Post Re: Sprite Help Thread
Hey ya'll. Just this week I downloaded CC and am taking the first leap into modding. I am a terrible artist and even worse "sprite-er," but I want to give it a try anyway. I've been reading up on the tutorials and your helpful posts and was wondering if you could give me some critiques on this gun? It's a S&W 500-4 and I was using online images as a guide. I think it's pretty good (relaltively speaking). But the more I look at it, the more I think it looks like Mickey Mouse (i.e. the rear site and hammer). Would anyone mind altering/improving it or at least give me some feedback?
PS I hope I saved it as the correct .bmp, I chose the 24 bit one that MS Paint was offering

EDIT: So I worked on it a little more and think this appears a little better. For some reason though, whenever the actor turns to the Left side of the screen, the gun becomes invisible.

This has probably been asked before, but I can't find it.

My sprites keep coming up with the ugly white boxes around them. Why is this? (All the colors they use on on the palette btw)

It's probably in the wrong format, make sure to save it as 256 colour bitmap if given the opportunity.
Also, if you're using Windows 7 paint, that would be the problem, it can't use the right format and won't work.

Yeah, just using the right colours (and only the right colours) isn't enough, CC is really picky about the specific file type/format/whatever. :roll:

Don't upload them in a zip file like that. It just makes it so much of a hassle for us to look at them.

Find an image hosting site (Ex. http://www.imgur.com, http://www.minus.com) and upload them there and post them here using the image tags.

Once again, stupid beginner question that I can't seem to find on the internet. (I think my googling skills need work :P)

Whenever I make a new sprite, it crashes saying it can't load the data file. What do I need to change to get CC to accept my sprite? I checked the include .ini bits but I couldn't find anything there. Did I miss something? Help appreciated!

Edit: I think the problem MIGHT be that I'm using gimp. The file needs to be saved as a 256 bitmap, right? I'll try messing with the export settings...

Double edit: Now I can use my sprites, but the color is totally messed up and they're surrounded by a white outline. I used only the colors on the palette, but it still comes out looking weird.

So, I recently attempted to resprite 110 different sprite pieces, and spent about an hour on it.
When I saved everything, and started CC, The sprites where the same. Any clue what happened?

Did you do anything with file replacement or changing FilePaths?

Ten Bucks when you hit save they saved to another location which you don't know of.
